How can I remove an excused assignment from a student's to-do list?
From my testing it seems that excused assignments don't show up in the student's "To Do" list, but they do show up in the Coming Up list. Below is a screen shot I took when I was logged in as one of my students. The "excused" assignment is marked as excused for this student and shows up in the Coming up, but not the "To Do" list. An assignment scheduled for the exact same day (and almost time) that isn't excused does show up in the To Do list. From what I can tell, no you can't prevent this from showing up.
From what I can tell, no you can't prevent the excused assignment from showing up in the Coming Up area, but that seems wrong. It seems like if it's excused it shouldn't show up at all. My recommendation is to start with Canvas Support (click on the Help link and Report a problem) and see what they have to say about it showing up. And if they say it's normal/expected behavior then you might want to create a The specified item was not found.for this - How do I create a new feature idea?
